The Faggots & Their Friends Between Revolutions - by Larry Mitchell
a joyous and perverse intermingling of fable, myth, heterotopian
vision, and pocket wisdom, The Faggots and Their Friends tell us stories
of the 70s gay countercultures and offer us strategies and wisdom for
our own time living Between Revolutions.
From the new introduction:
pages sketch a different shape to time and offer instructions for
living within it. This story, like our own, plays out in liminal time.
Not the time of revolution, and not after-the-revolution, the story
occurs between revolutions. Being between revolutions: being enmeshed in
slow entropy, in abandoned spaces, in lives forged without recourse to
'winning' or 'after'. The faggots feel this disintegration, and live
best when empires are falling."
introduced and wrapped in letterpress-printed lavender, this much needed
2016 revival of the 1977 Radical Faerie classic faithfully reproduces
the long out of print edition by Calamus Books, including Ned Asta's
fantastical illustrations and even the cover price.
is possibly the sweetest gay fantasy book written during the magical
post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS epoch. It's a series of poems/stories about
fairy men living in a community, spending time together, wearing
spangles, and mocking straight society. " - a comment on Goodreads
